    check your fuseable link connected to the battery positive cable, do you have waring lights on in the dash, do your dome lights work?

Sounds like there is heavy resistance in your start solenoid first try cleaning the stater & battery terminals if that fails replace the start solenoid

Purchased a reconditioned battery the battery indicator light comes on and fluid comes from under the caps on top of the battery what is this


Sounds like 2 problems.. 1. don't buy "rebuilt" batteries.. The fluid comning out implys that the battery is being overcharged by the alternator..(Or the battery is overfilled) couple of possibilities .. 1, the alternator has shorted out and is putting our really excessive voltage.. say like 20+ volts.. you can check this with a volt meter..(Don't have one?? they are real cheap at Harbor Freight Tools)) Should not be over 14.6 volts.. #2. The battery was "rebuilt" wrong and is only a 10volt battery instead of a 12 v battery in which case 14.6 v would be too many for it. I have not seen a "reconditioned/rebuilt" battery in years.. last one i saw was in southern Mexico about 20 years ago.

Hello. My 1993 Mercury Grand Marquis died on the highway after the battery "alternator?" light coming on about 20 minutes prior. We replaced the alternator with a rebuilt and the light is STILL...


A ford needs a fully charged battery to work the alternator. You may burn out the replacement alternator by hooking it up to a dead battery. Get the battery charged and have it load tested. You may have a bad battery and it should be checked. http://www.cardone.com/english/club/select/electrical/protech/tech_bulletins/PT37-0006.pdf

Headlights cutting out on my ford thunderbird


Your alternator may be on its way out. The alternator keeps the battery charged while driving and if the battery looses charge extra lights on the vehicle are usually the first to go.
A rarer possibility is that there is a wire that is rotted. I would get your alternator tested first.

My 95 ford thunderbird started right up in the morning, i drove it about 10 miles and shut it off about an hour later i went to start it and it made a loud click and it wouldnt start, nothing works like...


check battery cable for tightness and no corrosion.if all is well charge the battery or jump start it. while engine running check to see if the alternator is charging it.it should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts while engine idling.turn off engine battery voltage should be 12.5. if drops to 11.0 to 10.0 volts.battery is weak.if car running the voltage should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts alternator is charging. if the voltage is 11.8 to 11.0 volts. alternator is not charging.

How do I uninstall and install an alternator on a '93 thunderbird??


ericka1 hold up on the alternator! You have a new battery in the car, now what's going on? When u turn the key on, does your engine turn over (crank)? The alternator charges the battery when the car is running, if u have a new battery in the car, it should start, even if the alternator is bad. The alternator would cause the battery to lose it's charge if it is bad. So, 1st thing to check (if car won't start), is there spark at the spark plugs, and is fuel getting to the spark plugs. You must have both for the car to start and run. Check that out 1st, and provide info, we can take it from there.
